Djibouti–France relations refers to the current and historical relationship between Djibouti and France. Djibouti was obtained as a colony by France in 1862 and officially controlled Djibouti until it received independence in 1977. Djibouti maintains military and economic agreements with France which provide continued security and economic assistance. The largest French military base in Africa is located in Djibouti's territorial waters in the Red Sea.[1]
